Madrid Have Many Offensive Players, Kroos Glad So Balancing
Madrid – Being a team with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema, make Toni Kroos should refrain from offensive play. However, she was fun just to balance in the team.
Kroos now is known as a central midfielder or defensive midfielder. However, in the early days of his senior career, Kroos has played as an attacking midfielder. That is, the offensive play is not something alien to him.
However, with so many offensive players in Real Madrid today, Kroos must be smart to resist the desire to move forward. Now, he’s trying to be a counterweight to stand very deep in midfield while keeping the area with good positioning.
“We have a lot of offensive players, so going forward is priority number two for me,” he said as quoted by Marca.
“Now my focus about the game in midfield and made sure we were all in the right position.”
Kroos, who brought in Madrid from Bayern Munich at the start of the season, has played 25 times in La Liga this season. The result, he has contributed one goal and seven assists.
German midfielder also said he was happy with the support it has received in the first season.
“People here are always happy when he saw me. I thought, that’s what makes Real Madrid so exciting,” said Kroos.
